World Cafe Playlist for 06/21/2024

Iron and Wine joins host Stephen Kallao

Sam Beam of Iron and Wine says his new album, Light Verse, is about loss, but presented in a whimsical way. He stops by World Cafe to talk about making the album in Laurel Canyon, working with Fiona Apple on the song “All in Good Time” and why, as a songwriter, he’s not a fan of adjectives. Plus, we’ll hear live recordings of songs from Light Verse. It’s Iron and Wine
